Death caused by the negligence, misconduct or wrong doing of another person or business is known as wrongful death. A wrongful death is a death, and the pain, sadness and horrible grief that accompanies an unexpected tragedy. Losing a loved one is sad and tragic. Although nothing can compensate for the loss of a life, under Florida law you may be entitled to receive compensation.
It Shouldn't Have Happened
When a death would not have happened if someone or something had not caused it to happen, you and your family deserve answers. Why did this occur? What caused the death? Could it have been prevented? Was someone responsible? Did someone fail to do something that could have prevented death?
Areas Of Wrongful Death
- Accidental electrocution
- Defective products
- Car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian deaths
- Boating deaths
- Drowning and swimming pool fatalities
- Drunk driver deaths
- Medical malpractice
- Medication errors
- Dangerous products
- Negligent property maintenance and lack of security
Knowing the answer to "why did this happen" won’t bring a family member, friend or loved one back to life. But it can give you answers as to why it happened to help you try to deal with your loss. Sometimes it is important to work with specialists and experts to understand exactly what happened, why, and whether it could have been prevented. For instance, in deaths resulting from possible medical mistreatment, it is important to work with expert doctors to understand what happened, whether treatment was proper and timely, or what should have been done and when. Death due to dangerous products, pharmacy errors, and unsafe premises likewise require specialists. Even drowning and boating deaths all require proper investigation to provide answers.
